    FSX I think I messed up my registry

    Here I am this Summer, installing the FSX Steam Edition on this almost empty PC in my Italian office..... NOT knowing that it will mess up my already installed FSX... Grrrrrrr....... So although the FSX Classic files are still on the hard disk, clicking on the fsx.exe will start the newly...

    Gone fishing !?

    Thanks Tom, I'll print this out and try to follow it step by step. 3DSMax has so many thingies to click on, I get dizzy ! ;-)

    Gone fishing !?

    Okay, so I got it to show in 3DSMax..... but now my own textures are gone..... LOLOL !!! I guess I am not made to be a developer..... Anybody here ever looked at the Lynda.com tutorials on 3DSMax and Photoshop? The free stuff I found on the Internet so far either doesn't cover what I need or...

    Gone fishing !?

    Understood. As to that last remark, only if you have the software and skills for (gMax and) 3DSM ;-) I don't so am 'stuck' with Sketchup for now. I'll try the coloured-square tactic next. Thanks guys !

    Gone fishing !?

    But if I don't use colors I cannot use the 'paintbucket' tool can I? I will need to paste the texture sheet and position it on each and every little bit of surface in the model?

    Gone fishing !?

    So I THOUGHT I had it down now, after re-installing Arno's tools and re-doing the texture resize and format change, then adding everything back into FSX via Library Creator. But....... oh boy ...... now OTHER parts are missing !!! I am getting the suspicion that somehow Sketchup colours are...

    FSX Me again..... more fumblings

    Thanks Arno I'll check (do it again). I now found a bunker that I made a few months ago that seems to have the same error.... another landing craft I made looks fine (just next to it in the picture).

    FSX Me again..... more fumblings

    NOW you know why I am NOT going to do a tutorial on the conference.... *sigh*. After getting the textures done right (and getting rid of the see-through issue) I converted my Sketchup png texture tile to DDS using MCX. I then saved the converted model and opened FSX with baited breath ...

    FSX Finally got my first LCA version done

    I use Boxshot.... it is a program that was designed to make, well, box shots.... but it serves well for rendering my .dae files too :-)

    Gone fishing !?

    Kevin, my staff always rolled their eyes when I started testing their apps already 35 years ago...... leave it to a 'specialist tester' to get unexpected results every time !!! ROFL !! I think somehow I copied the material tile and got part of the 'background' to show transparent? No idea how...

    How to publish your payware product?

    I haven't seen it mentioned here yet, but there are different shades of grey in the FS publishing world, too. There are companies who JUST sell your stuff - maybe provide an installer - , like simMarket or Flightsim.com, and charge you from 20 to 40 % to keep their servers running and heaters...
